Taxpayers May Fund Ex-GSA Official’s Retirement?
Taxpayers may get the multimillion-dollar “retirement tab” for a former U.S.
General Services Administration official who oversaw an $823,000 Las Vegas
conference, a U.S. lawmaker said.
The GSA announced without elaboration yesterday that Jeff Neely no longer
worked at the agency. He will probably retire with government payments of more
than $100,000 a year, Representative John Mica, a Republican from Florida, said
today in a statement.
Mica, chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, planned to
investigate the terms of Neely’s departure, according to the statement.
The public shouldn’t have to fund multimillion-dollar deals for “government
administrators who abuse their positions and snub their noses at Congress and
the American people,” it said.
